“In terms of diet, I strive to eat seasonal, locally grown, organic, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables, as well as meat and dairy from organic farms like Daylesford. My treats are chocolates and once in a while a good red wine or my favorite Léoube Rosé,” she told Vogue. “Compared to conventionally grown produce, organic produce has lower detectable levels of pesticide residues. Organic produce can have residues from pesticides approved for organic farming or from airborne pesticides from conventional farms. The difference in health outcomes is unclear due to safety regulations regarding maximum residue levels allowed on conventional products,” explains the Mayo Clinic.
“When I started having children, I tried to be as healthy as possible and by doing so, I feel better today in my body and in myself in general. I train by doing something different every day, from tennis to a yoga class, to a 15-minute abs class online, or walking on the treadmill for an hour while watching a movie. I use organic and natural skincare products from Bamford. I also love Epsom salt baths, meditating with the Calm app and lighting candles like Baies by Diptyque,” she told Vogue.
Schiffer tells the Khaleej times that she exercises “as much as possible”, however, she prefers slower workouts as opposed to intense workouts. One of Schiffer’s favorite ways to work out is walking. “I prefer to walk even when it’s very cold…I try to do my best to relax my body, my face,” she says. “A 150 pound person walking a mile in 20 minutes will burn about 80 calories. If you are heavier, you burn more calories because it takes more energy to move more mass. Similarly, the number is lower if you weigh less,” explains the Mayo Clinic.
Schiffer is also a big fan of practicing yoga and says it helps her relax. “I also work on my breathing, thanks to yoga… I like to have stress-free breaks“, she tells the Khaleej times. “Yoga can make a big difference in your life,” says the Cleveland Clinic:
- “Decrease stress
- Reduce chronic pain
- Improve immune response
- Lower blood pressure
- Improve posture and body alignment
- Increase muscle strength
- Provide a feeling of joy and well-being.”
Schiffer tells vogue that after having her children, she wanted to improve her health and be as fit as possible. Schiffer says a big part of her fitness routine is variety, and she likes to do different workouts. “I train by doing something different every day, from tennis to a yoga class, to a 15-minute abs class online or walking on the treadmill for an hour while watching a movie. “
As a model, Schiffer naturally knows a lot of beauty secrets and tricks, and she also has to take care of her skin. She says vogue that she uses organic skin products and makes skincare a priority, as it helps her mental health. “It’s really important to take time for yourself for your mental health and well-being, but also the key to having beautiful skin and slowing down the signs of aging. So not a ‘trick’ as such but having spent years on photo shoots with makeup being I learned from a very young age how important it is to take care of your skin. I have always been rigorous about cleaning and the use of products skincare products that nourish and fortify your skin, which is why at 50 your skin looks better than ever,” she told Vogue.
